Quick HOWTO : Simple steps to Kickstart a Linux Server with CD/DVD



1.  Copy the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg as a base from your customized installation of Linux
2.  Setup a web-server with the loopback dvd mounted and reachable
3.  Make sure the kickstart file is reachable through the web-server
4.  Boot the client to be kickstarted with options

Options are:

linux ks=http://<your webserver>/<your ks-file>

Example:
linux ks=http://192.168.1.1/linuxkickstartfile.ks.

Thats all... Done :)
